How to Draw a Thanksgiving Turkey, Cooked Turkey

Artist: Dawn / November 17, 2011

Step 1.

Begin with a regular circle for the base of the bird.

Step 2.

Here you will draw out the breast of the turkey, and then draw in the nub where the neck once was, and then draw in the featherless wing.

Step 3.

You will now begin drawing out the drumsticks or legs of the cooked turkey. Be sure to get the bones drawn right, and when you feel like you are done here, move to step four.

Step 4.

Finish drawing the turkey by sketch in the back and butt. Add the cut off lines on the bones and move to step five.

Step 5.

Finally, draw out the dish or platter that your cooked turkey is resting on, and then clean up the drawing to perfection.

Step 6.

Here is the line art when you are all done. Color in your turkey, and now you are all done.

Description: Next week Thanksgiving in the US is going to be upon us, Thursday the 24th to be exact. I know I have done a few turkeys in the past for this special holiday, but I never did a tutorial on making an actual cooked turkey drawing. So here is my second food lesson and it’s on "how to draw a Thanksgiving turkey", step by step. This oven baked bird is one of my second favorite things to eat on gobble day. My first best thing to annihilate is stuffing. I actually make sure I get a good helping of stuffing. My mother makes the best stuffing there is. The weird thing that gets me is how something tastes so good with only a few things mixed together. Anyways, I will be back later with some more drawing fun. In the meantime enjoy tackling this task of drawing a thanksgiving turkey. Remember, you can dress up your turkey dish drawing with all kinds of veggies, side dishes, and tasty cranberry sauce. Peace people and enjoy your holiday.
